Hi Guys! My name is Marisha Agarwal and this is my #UGStory. In this video I am going to talk about 4 things, namely “How did I find the university?”, “What made me choose the university”, “First Year Experience”, “Present Day: Second Year”

How did I find and choose the university of groningen?

So how did my search begin for this university? Well, it started off by looking at universities all across the country. I’m currently studying 2 Year Chemical Engineering, I was searching for universities offering this course. My search goes something like this. I have always been a city girl and I wanted to see what life would be like in a smaller town. This city has much to offer and I was really surprised to see that the university was so highly ranked. I love science! When I found out that there are so many celebrated scientists who have done work here, been students here or professors here, I was really excited as I was told by senior students that the student associations take us on excursions to see the different factories nearby to see what we have been learning from the books in the lectures, which I found very engaging because I could actually see what I was studying from diagrams in the book in real life. For me, that was one of the biggest points that stood out from other universities in Netherlands. Now comes the tough part, I had to choose which university I wanted to go to for the next 3-4 years, but that all boiled down to one thing and one thing only, which was was the way the city was. I fell in love with this city as soon as I discovered that this city is a melting pot of cultures. There are people from all across Asia and Europe to United States of America, to Australia, you can find anybody from anywhere and it's so nice to meet new people and make new friends. Also, this city if very student friendly which means that there are people aged between 20-21 years old and that is the average age of the city! It’s a very young city! Which probably means that the guy working at the supermarket or on campus is a student and probably your classmate. Another fun fact about the city is that it's a biking city! So if you want to get around from one place to another AND get your workouts done, its the best way! Lastly, this city is a hybrid of modern and traditional architecture. On one side you will see glass buildings, and on the other side you will see traditional, stone buildings and its so beautiful.
